¡Hola! My name is Rob Maxfield, and I am a senior at Davidson College. I major in economics and minor in hispanic studies. Lacrosse is my favorite sport, and I play for the men’s club lacrosse team at Davidson. Also, I am involved with Davidson’s Investment and Finance Association. I am originally from Chicago. I was lucky enough to spend the summer of 2017 in Spain, mostly in the southern city of Cádiz. I am very excited to share my passion for learning a second language with Davidson’s elementary students!
I am a senior Environmental Studies major and Hispanic Studies minor at Davidson. On campus, I am a member of Connor Eating House and volunteer with Davidson Refugee Support’s Nutrition team where we teach cooking classes to asylees in Charlotte. After my first year at Davidson, I was able to spend the summer studying in Havana, Cuba, where I improved my language skills and was immersed in Cuba’s fascinating culture. I am so thankful for the opportunity to work with Davidson’s SiDES program and am excited to spread an appreciation for the Spanish language! Fun fact: I studied abroad in Perugia, Italy last fall, where I participated in a Food and Sustainability Studies Program!
